THESE DOG DAYS
A resource for disabled dogs and their owners
Today we meet Alex and discuss life with Raj, a blind American Pit Bull. Raj suffered horrible abuse in his early life before being rescued by Animal Humane New Mexico and eventually adopted by Alex.
Alex tells us about Raj's adjustment to becoming blind and settling into a safe, new life in Albuquerque. She shares some great advice and recommends useful products for others who are adjusting to life with a blind dog.
Could you tell us a bit about Raj and how he came to be blind?
Today we meet Mira and her dog Leo from Philadelphia USA. We talk about her experience of caring for dog who very rapidly became blind due to Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration (SARD). She describes the challenges in the early days following the diagnosis and shares some advice for others facing the same situation.
Could you tell us a bit about your experience with SARDs and caring for a blind dog?
